So sad! Diva Beyonce didn’t manage to win any of the four Emmys that she was nominated for on Sunday night. The Sorry hitmaker had her fans on the edge of their seats with rumours of a surprise performance but what they got instead was disappointment all round at the 68th annual Emmy Awards.
Fans were hoping that Beyonce’s HBO special and visual-album Lemonade was going to scoop the awards, so the BeyHives were furious when Laverne Cox announced that directors of Grease: Live – Thomas Kail and Alex Rudzinski – had won the final Emmy for Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special.
“I wasted 2 hours for Beyoncé to not show up & to lose the EMMY #Emmys2016 ,” one disappointed fan tweeted. Another joked about Beyonce and Jay Z’s imagined conversation: “Somewhere Beyoncé is laying in a bathtub of money – Jay: Bey, you didn’t win the Emmy – Beyoncé: Who?”
While another added: “How you gonna bring Laverne Cox up to present an award Beyoncé is nominated in and have her give it to two white men #Emmys ”.
